Broccoli Raitha (Broccoli in Yogurt)

When I saw "SWC- Salads under 15 minutes" event hosted by Lakshmi, lot of thoughts passed by. Thought of preparing this salad, that salad!!! But, never realised that days are passing by & last day is nearing.When I visited her blog today, I found today is the last day for sending the entries to SWC-salad. So, decided to post something that I have already tried, for which I had a photo taken already!! When I prepared this raitha for the first time, I had used the basic recipe from "SpiceIndiaOnline", later customized to meet our family needs.

Hope you all enjoy this as much as we do :)

1 small cup broccoli (chop it into medium sized pieces)
1 cup curd/yogurt
1/2 tsp jeera powder/cumin seed powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
4 drops of olive oil
salt according to taste
1 tsp chopped cliantro (coriander leaves)

  • Chop the broccoli into medium sized pieces & cook it by adding sufficient water for 2-4 mins.
  • Meantime, beat yogurt. Mix cumin seed powder, red chilli powder, salt & keep it aside
  • Drain out the water from broccoli & add olive oil to it. Mix well.
  • Add the cooked broccoli, coriander leaves to the yogurt mixture.
  • Mix well & serve it either with parantha or vegetable pulao.
